The con¬ ference is being held this Week at the King Edward Hotel and over tm Jewish social service workers from all parts of America and Can- la are in attendance. In his opinion. Dr. Brickner said that the cessastion of immigration is permanent and will result in the elim- of the problem of the immi¬ grant Jew, whose adjustment to American life was up to now the problem of Jewish social work- in the next twenty-five years; if the Jew enjoys the same economic privileges he does today in Amprica, there will be no poor Jews and the ^hettosi will disappear, he said, and with the ghettos will go the Yiddish language and Jewish ceremonialism. Jewish life will cease to fee secular and will only differ from Bther in religious culture, he added. This will reduce the work of the Jewish social worker to a minimuiTl, and the charity Jews will have to find »narket for tHetr iJhilanlpiropy, eluded the speaker. Rev.

The resolution paid tribute to Mr Lipsky as the "leader of American Zionism." Rabbi Silverman onding the resolution, compared the work of Mr. Lipsky with the work of the Brandeis group, without naming the latter, saying that when former leaders of the Zionist Organization decided either to rule or ruin, Mr. Lipsky ped into iJie breach, and Morris Waldman Read. Pre.idenfi Message In tffe absence of Maurice B. Hexter, of Boston, president of the Conference, who is now in Europe, Morris D. Wald- read Mr. Hexter's annual mes¬ sage. Mr. Hexter made a plea for the pplication of scientific methods in the valuation of experience in social wel¬ fare work. Effect of Jewish Home Life on Chil¬ dren- Failures to check juvenile delin¬ quency among Jews arc due in large the lack of co-operation of the Synagogue and Rabbi," declared Mr. Jesse Perlman, Executive Director of the Committee on Field Activities of tlie Jewish Board of Guardians of New York City. Mr. Perlman deVottd the greater part of his paper to the failures in Jewish juvenile delinquency work on the part of Jewish organizations. • He put tht blame for this failure on the break¬ down of the Jewish family; inadequate Jewish schools; lack of interest on the part of Rabbis and .the Synagogues; the non-co-operation of Jewish indu.s- tries and the ineffective preventative wprk of Jewish Social agencies. There are many people who still U-- lieve in the cfiica'cy of the good, old fashioned slipper juvenile delinquency problems.

He criticised some, of t'le Jewish settle- for laying too little stress on Jewish activities, especially those or¬ ganizations whose Americanization work consists chiefly in teaching those n their community the words anguage and the waving of a flag. 'Such Americanization," he said, without friendship, without love, therefore, without power to bridge the unfortunate abyss; it fails to encourage the parents to become acquainted w the happier customs ,of the land, adapt themselves to the new order things, so that they may bring up their children properly. iljbn with'our organi^tiSir'previous this conference. We laid our whole problem of employmlent before them. Frankly and boldly ive told them we had had boys whom wt would like to get jobs for. We told them that \ve thought that a good job in an establish¬ ment where a little supervision, a lit¬ tle personal interest might be taken in, the boy would serve as a tremendous interest for the boy's reclamation. We told that some of these boys might cori- tinue. their pilfering, petty and not so petty. We told them that we wanted their help and that in giving us their help they would be facing problenils of instability, . disorder, perhaps' actual loss, and that we hope they could see' way to write off such a loss by way of an additional contribution to their charities. The response wa? elec¬ tric. Most of the men offered to take boys, and as soon as he showed he making good, to take another boy; and " "e failed to make good, to take other boy anyhow. And most of theih agreed enthusiastically to our plan- that each of them call together a simi¬ lar coniference of a half dozen or so em¬ ployers to do likewise. In other words, we are now committed to Hie proposi¬ tion of building up a clientele of em¬ ployers, who will be somUhing mort than employers; who will be willing ic take a chance, and willing to co-operate our treatment of the delinquent. "We must arm ourselves with aids that lie in the family, in :hoDl, in the synagogue and in tin dustry," Mr. Perlman concluded, must urge upon these forces ish social life that they serve m. The urging is our 1 part of the job, the rest of the job U theirs. Until we do our job and get these other agencies to do theirs, and until we learn how to make the best of tlie limited contributions that volun¬ teers can bring to our work, and until professionals come to a serious iteniplation of the need for study, for attaining knowledge, and until we ^ to a realization that our efforts experiments and must, lheref(3re be subject to flexibility and change at all shall continue plodding in the slough of failure." and by Rabbi Ashinsk>', -who delivered' 1 address in Hebrew. ilr. Lipsky, in his speech, as Chief Executive of the American Zionists, reviewed the great change which has been brought about in Jewish life in America and in other countries by the work of the Zionist Organization. Re¬ ferring to the present political guaran- Palestine, he stated: "Palestine cli guarantees as we have is not a pawn. It is the Queen of the Game- at dictates the strategy 0.1 the future." All that is further required for the final achievement of the Zionist ideal, Mr. Ljp-sky added, is the labor and the sacrifice of the Jewish people. This spirit has already made itself 'so evi¬ dent in" Palestine that many visitors, who have previously been indifferent to the cause, come back stirred to sacrifice and work for' the rebuilding of Pales- Dem.
